UCL: Rashford Seals Record-Breaking Win For Man United Over PSG
Manchester United required a miracle to pull through to the Quarter final stage of the UEFA Champions League and that they did; producing an historic comeback at the expense of PSG in Paris on Wednesday night.
The Red Devils were left with a mountain to climb after losing the home first leg 2-0 last month - a position from which no side had ever recovered in Champions League or European Cup history.
However, Marcus Rashford scored a 94th minute penalty - controversially awarded for handball against Presnel Kimpembe after a lengthy VAR review - to seal one of United's greatest ever European nights as they secured an away-goals victory with a 3-1 triumph at the Parc des Princes.
Romelu Lukaku had earlier opened the scoring after only two minutes and then restored that lead before half time following Juan Bernat's equaliser, with both goals being gifted to him by PSG errors.
However, Rashford stole the show as he kept his nerve with his first ever penalty for the United to spark wild scenes of celebration on an unforgettable evening in Paris.
It is worthy to note that United arrived in the French capital without 10 first-team players - nine of whom were injured in addition to the suspended Paul Pogba but nonetheless they won the war and the battle to make it to the last eight.
